I also use portupgrade constantly on several systems, and portmaster
occasionally for some special cases where it has advantages.

I also use poudriere on a lot of systems.  Actually, most, nowadays.
And I'm extremely happy with it.  But I expect the systems I'm running
straight out of ports now will continue to do so for a very long time,
since poudriere just won't fit at all.
